I'm not quite sure I understand your response here. He didn't ask for you to explain the strategy. He asked for you to provide plain-text patches. I think a point has been made pretty clear at this point: they need plain-text patches. Requiring developers to learn an entirely new work-flow just to get your patches into the tree is time-consuming and bothersome, at the least. This isn't a discussion about whether or not your system is better. It's about how best to integrate your work into Gentoo. The developers have decided the best way is through plain-text patches. That's really all there is to it. Take it or leave it. The discussion about how best to join multiple branches of development across the open-source world together really does not belong in this thread, as far as I can tell. --     Jacob     "For then there will be great distress, unequaled     from the beginning of the world until now — and never     to be equaled again.
